As a female, video game journalist, I’m also asked if I find certain games that I have to play for work offensive.

It’s all over folks. There wasn’t even a contest. When it comes to Pokemon Mega Evolutions, Mega Slowbro just went and blew every other freakishly overpowered Pokemon out of the park.
